Young Life


Young Life has been serving the youth of the Chicagoland area for more than 60 years. Under the leadership of current regional director Jon Houghton, over 300 adult volunteer leaders and 40 full time staff invest time with teenagers in order to build lasting friendships and help them consider what it means to follow Christ. Of particular interest to the Fellowship is the work of Young Life in the inner city of Chicago. Our city ministry serves several neighborhoods in the heart of Chicago, reaching thousands of at-risk young men and women with the good news of Jesus Christ; helping them find new hope in the midst of the difficult and often dangerous neighborhoods in which they live.
